iPhone 15 Ultra - Following In Samsung's Footsteps
4 min read

iPhone 15 Ultra Following  In Samsung's Footsteps   So the dictionary defines the word  “ultra” as: “beyond what is ordinary,   proper, or moderate” Basically ultra is a word  we use to overemphasize something: ultra-fast,   ultra-powerful, ultra-big. Samsung is the one  that popularized this word in the tech world. Of   course, they weren't the first ones to come up  with this name. Sony actually released a phone   named Xperia Z Ultra almost a decade ago. But it  was Samsung who educated the tech world that their   Ultra phone takes every spec to the Nth degree,  with the biggest this and the fastest that.  

And now, Apple is following in Samsung's footsteps  and has decided to come up with an Ultra phone of   their own, the iPhone 15 Ultra. That's according  to both Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo, two of the   most reputable analysts out there.

By the way,  Apple has been flirting with the Ultra branding   for quite some time now. Besides the Apple  Watch Ultra, there is also a processor Apple   unveiled recently called the M1 Ultra, which is  currently powering their MacBook Pros. So it only   made sense they would call their highest-end  iPhone the iPhone 15 Ultra. And by the way,   this is not going to be a fifth iPhone model,  Apple is planning to replace the Pro Max with   the Ultra which is a good move in my opinion  as it simplifies the whole naming scheme.  

Now, all the current Ultra phones have  Ultra features. If Apple is using the   Ultra name for their iPhones then it  got to have some Ultra features. Well,   we already know a couple of upgrades the  iPhone 15 Ultra is getting that are worthy   of its Ultra name. The first one is of course the  periscope zoom camera. Mark Gurman, Ming-Chi Kuo,   and other top Apple leakers have repeatedly  mentioned that Apple will finally include a   periscope zoom camera on the iPhone 15 Ultra  and only the Ultra variant will get this,   while the smaller iPhone 15 Pro will keep  the regular telephoto lens for optical   zoom.

Ming-Chi Kuo also mentioned that  the 1/3″ sensor will have a 12-megapixel   resolution with f/2.8 aperture, sensor-shift  stabilization, and up to 6x optical zoom.   So not as quite as powerful as Samsung's 10x  optical zoom on the S22 Ultra, but it's about   time, they are finally including this sensor. The second ultra feature could be the titanium   build. That's according to this guy who doesn't  have a great track record so take it with a bit of   skepticism but if true, it's great news for anyone  who frequently drops their phone.

Titanium is   three to four times stronger than stainless steel  at the same weight, which also means that it can   provide the same strength as stainless steel at 40  percent of the weight. This will enable Apple to   make the iPhone 15 Ultra either incredibly light  without losing strength or extremely strong.   I guess it will be the former as the  iPhone 14 Pro Max is so heavy that it   gets uncomfortable to use for a longer period  of time. So titanium would surely counter that   problem provided this rumor is true.
